What is the best pattern to sync data between two recycler view with two activities?

i have two activities where they have almost same data,i am using same Adapter, But the problem is how to sync data...

Activity A has recyclerview where it has like buttons in each row with unique id.
Activity B also have same recyclerview but with some filter mechanism so it is not going to show all row, my question is how to handle like button state in Activity A and Activity B, such that if i click on activity B's like button than activity A's like button will automatically gets checked and vise versa.

Thanks in adv. for your help... happy coding :)

Answer Source

You should use common data source for both the recycler views.

  1. Get data from API
  2. Save data in your local db
  3. Feed the data to your Activity A recycler view
  4. Feed the same data to your Activity B recycler view
  5. All the changes you make to data should be in local db so both the views can update automatically.
